Back in April last year, we launched a Patreon to maintain Already Heard‘s longevity. As a reward for supporting Already Heard, Patrons receive a handpicked release or compilation courtesy of our partnership with several independent labels from the UK, the US, Europe and Australia.
Today, we’re pleased to announce partnerships with three independent labels; Lockjaw Records, KROD Records and Beth Shalom Records, joining an already impressive list of contributing labels.
Originally founded in 1997, Lockjaw Records‘ history lies in releasing the best in DIY punk and hardcore from throughout the UK and Europe. Now with outposts in Guildford, London, Manchester, Oostkamp and Antwerp, Lockjaw Records is proud to be part of a thriving international music community, built on friendship, social-responsibility and a mutual love of punk rock.
Based across Germany and France, over the past four years, KROD Records has maintained a growing reputation for releasing stellar and emerging punk bands from across the continent. Their back catalogue includes releases from Cold Reading, Colour Me Wednesday, Prey Drive, The Deadnotes and South Berkeley.
Beth Shalom Records
Founded by singer-songwriter Joe Booley in late 2014, Beth Shalom Records is a small independent record label that specialises in alternative, indie and acoustic music. Their roster includes itoldyouiwouldeatyou, Death By Shotgun, Hora Douse, The Yacht Club, americansignlanguage and Marigolds.
‘Thank You: Winter 2019’ Compilation Released
The fourth volume of our ongoing ‘Thank You’ compilation series is now available to all Patreon supporters.
‘Thank You: Winter 2019’ consists of 11 songs including tracks by American Football (featuring Hayley Williams), Jamie Lenman, A.A.Williams, I Cried Wolf, Martha, Burnt Tapes and more.

‘Already Heard Collective’ Contributor
‘The AH Collective’ is a standalone playlist consisting of songs chosen by the AH team of writers and photographers.
However, there is a reason we’ve called it ‘The AH Collective’. We want to show our readers there’s no divide between us (the AH team) and them. So, we’re offering all Patreon supporters the chance to contribute to the playlist.
If you have a song or band that you’d like to see on the playlist, you can submit to be included when you become an Already Heard Patreon supporter.
